Great collection, signage too small.Impressive context setting so that The Lifeline is read on many levels once you reach it.We would love to have posters from this exhibit - of the sketches as well as the master paintings.

Wonderful exhibit; however, the introduction to the exhibit in the foyer should not be white printing on a gray background in a dimly lit room.This makes it quite difficult to read, especially for those wanting information or an introduction to the exhibit.

The images are both awe inspiring and poignant. The artist take a most horrible of human conditions and render beautiful works of art.

I especially enjoyed Marget's insightful comments from 9/21.

I liked learning about the marine painting tradition....and how Homer's contemporaries would have understood the larger context that's unseen on the canvas of The Lifeline. Thanks to whoever thought of building an exhibit around this painting!

I think that this exhibit demonstrates something that I believe has become lost in this modern age: the connection between man and nature, man and the world it lives in. Sometimes in a world where anything and everything has become possible, we tend to forget that we live where we live and that the world is a very cruel place. Therefore, it takes an artist like Homer and the time he lived in to remind us of our own fragility and our connection with where we live and what we go through day by day.

I visited with the impression that the works in the exhibit were those of Winslow Homer. I was not expecting all of the other works which while nice, tended to dilute the exhibit.The seascapes are wonderful and capture the many moods of the ocean and harbors. A delightful exhibit.The most current rescue was a near death experience, for a particularly noisy, out-loud talking tour guide, who made the visit to the galleries unpleasant for other visitors. Her timely departure rendered her strangulation unnecessary!

The themes of rescue, redemption, and introspection after disaster will never go away. The timing with Hurricane Sandy and its devastation on the Jersey Shore and in Staten Island and other places in NYC couldn't have been more appropriate. Thank you!

This amazing and beautiful exhibit is extremely touching.Loved looking a the depiction of the waves themselves, not easy to capture!For any who might like to see more of the actual life boats and rescue apparatus, a visit to the Tuckerton Seaport Museum would prove a worthwhile follow up to this exhibit. This Museum depicts the life of fishing and on the bay and the ocean in NJ during the time frame of this exhibit.

This exhibit is timely in light of the disaster brought by Hurricane Sandy along the coast of New Jersey and New York. It's a lovely exhibit.
